Mortsel, Belgium – 22 September 2005 – The Wyndeham Press Group is adopting the latest version of Agfa's :ApogeeX as its standard workflow solution. The decision follows extensive beta testing at Wyndeham Heron, the Group's flagship web offset print site in Maldon, Essex.
The Wyndeham Press Group Plc has long been a user of Agfa prepress technology and David Brown, recently appointed to Group Technical Director, has played an important role in beta testing the various developments of :ApogeeX at Wyndeham Heron.
Now the Wyndeham Press Group is undergoing a number of reorganisations, this calls for a standardisation of workflow and, after extensive trials, David is overseeing the adoption of Agfa's latest :ApogeeX 2.5 across the Group.
"This will help maximise the investments the Group has made at individual locations and reduce the need to duplicate specialist pieces of production equipment at various sites. The standardisation of :ApogeeX will also play a significant role in maintaining quality and efficiency throughout the Group," said David Brown.
"Recent developments of various software applications have also called for the Group to upgrade to the most up-to-date version of :ApogeeX workflow solution. In fact, :ApogeeX 2.5 incorporates functionality to protect against 'future proofing' or 'version creep' of complimentary software applications," he added.
"This is yet another strong endorsement from one of the UK's leading commercial print groups that Agfa really is leading the way in workflow technology," said Laurence Roberts, Director, Agfa Graphic Systems UK.
